The cove at Pt. San Luis would seem to be a nice place to sail a boat such as yours so long as you stay within a line between the breakwater at Whalers Island and Avila Rock, or better, Avila Pier (the further east you go the less shelter you will have from winds bending around the Point). There is a launching ramp at Pt. San Luis and, generally, little enough surf that you can easily run up on the beach for a lunch break just to the east. (Take a long bamboo pole along so you can push yourself out. It works better than a little outboard) Have a look at Google Earth for a better sense of the port.
You might also find the Back Bay at Morro Bay enjoyable for exploration. For more information on that contact the Morro Bay YC.
